Beyond-rare, previously unknown-to-exist pre-10cc EMIdisc two-sided acetate!
Side One is ‘Cry All Night’, the first-ever Graham Gouldman/Eric Stewart co-write from 1969. Gouldman is on lead vocals, but has a full band (almost certainly including Stewart) backing him. The track’s total running time is five minutes, hear an extract from it here:
Side Two has no label credit, but it’s a previously-undocumented track from the cancelled Frabjoy & Runcible Spoon album recorded with Gouldman and Giorgio Gomelsky in 1969. The song seems to be called ‘Watching The Secret’, and it’s clearly Kevin Godley singing lead and presumably Lol Creme on backing vocals. It also has a full band sound, so I'd imagine Gouldman is also involved. The total running time is approximately 5 minutes 10 seconds, hear an extract from it here:
Both sides of the acetate are in very clean Ex condition. Clearly an important discovery in terms of the embryonic Hotlegs/10cc as well as appealing to fans of late Sixties rock/psych!
